Every page contains wisdom that can easily be incorporated into existing, or new, mindfulness meditation practices This is a gem I will return to again and again. I started reading this book with doubts, wondering if I would be able to relate with it But having read Fidelity by Thich Nhat Hanh and having loved it, I picked this book for reading Surprisingly I was able to relate with it The insight was relatable and followable and it did sort of bring in a sense of peace and calmness.A goodread indeed.A lot of ppl these days are interested in Mindfulness.But then if we google Mindfulness and start reading blogs on it, over and over again it would be sug I started reading this book with doubts, wondering if I would be able to relate with it But having read Fidelity by Thich Nhat Hanh and having loved it, I picked this book for reading Surprisingly I was able to relate with it The insight was relatable and followable and it did sort of bring in a sense of peace and calmness.A goodread indeed.A lot of ppl these days are interested in Mindfulness.But then if we google Mindfulness and start reading blogs on it, over and over again it would be suggested that we should be here and now and not worry and that, that is what mindfulness is all about, which is completely understandable but not exactly relatable.But then this book sort of tells us how we can do that in little baby steps.I mean it s relatable.And mindfulness is indeed a quality that makes life easier and simpler.Also we sit for most parts of our lives, so its better if we know how to sit properly D Short and simple, yet still a little gem of a book. Instead of describing sitting meditation as the practice of concentration, looking deeply, and getting insight, I like to describe sitting as enjoying doing nothing Primarily, sitting is to enjoy the pleasure of sitting, being fully alive and in touch with the wonders of our working bodies, the cool air, the sounds of people and birds, and the changing colours of the sky. Breathing in, I feel calm.Breathing out, I feel ease.Calm Ease.Let s hope. Full of repetitive and simplistic notions of sitting as a form of meditation Some sentences do not make logical sense e.g The author says there is no reason why he sits he says he sits because he likes sitting Well, then isn t that a reasonThe reason being that he likes sitting P Probably not a book for theintellectually inclinedfor those who don t think too much about things and like their text to be very simple. Slim but powerful I hope to consistently put it to use, since I am teeming with habit energy. Disappointing.about 120 pages with each page only containing about a paragraph or two Not sure who this was intended for Not really thorough enough for a beginner in meditation and to superficial for those looking for insights beyond just an introduction.
